Every bride wants to stop traffic on their wedding day.

Every bride wants to stop traffic on their wedding day.

And Jamie-Emma Warton did just that.

Jamie-Emma met Steven Hugo at a Blackpool nightclub, though they already knew each other a little as Steven worked with Jamie-Emma’s cousin at the time.

The couple, from Blackpool, hit if off and soon after Steven, a sales representative, proposed.

Jamie-Emma says, “We had gone back to Steven’s mother’s after a romantic meal.

“He blindfolded me as I walked through the house and took me into the living room.”

As she removed her blindfold, Jamie-Emma was met with a thousand tea lights and fresh roses with ‘Will You Marry Me’ written on the living room mirror.

“Steven still got down on one knee and asked me to marry him,” says Jamie-Emma, a dispensing technician based in Kirkham, “he had my family and friends waiting across the road so when I said yes they all came over and surprised me to join in the celebration.”

The couple were married on June 23 at St Bartholomew’s Church, Chipping.

And though it is the bride’s perogative to turn up a little late, Jamie-Emma thought she would be different.

“The bridal party arrived at the church in the horse and carriage 10 minutes early,” says Jamie-Emma, “I thought I would try to be early rather than late which caused the road to come to a stand still in the village as 160 guests dashed into the church.”

The ceremony continued with two of the couple’s closest friends performing readings.

“Towards the end the vicar started to call us Jamie and Emma because of my name being double-barreled,” says the bride, “it certainly got the church on their feet with laughter.”

As the newlyweds made their way to their reception at The Gibbon Bridge Hotel, in the Forest of Bowland, friends and family from all over the world, including the Caribbean, Ireland and Australia, joined them.

Alongside the traditional best man’s speech which was “hilarious to say the least,” the youngest usher, 10 year-old Sam, performed a “beautiful and moving speech.”

Jamie-Emma says, “I don’t think there was one dry eye in the room.”

Providing entertainment on the evening was band, The Heat, who gave Steven his very own rockstar moment, performing his favourite Oasis song.

“Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be - romantic, fun, elegant and filled with laughter and happiness,” say the pair.
